Mary Pattillo is the Harold Washington Professor of Sociology and African American Studies at Northwestern University. Her pathbreaking work uses Chicago as a laboratory to explore the entanglements of racial, ethnic, and class inequities as these intersect with urban space and gentrification, the criminal justice system, youth socialization, and economic politics and policy. Dr. Pattillo has received numerous awards and received her Doctorate from the University of Chicago

The Bowman Lecture Series was established to honor Phillip J. Bowman’s contributions to UIC during his tenure as Director of IRRPP and Professor of African American Studies. It features national scholars of race, ethnicity, and public policy who provide timely analysis of issues of critical importance to the field and to communities of color.
